Understand the impact of changing business drivers on cash flow
When integrated into the holistic planning process, these scenarios can then be used to measure the impact of various changes, e.g. longer/shorter payment terms, price increases/decreases, supplier costs, etc. on revenues and cash flows.
As all components and drivers are fully reusable, they do not have to be re-built for refreshing forecast versions. Therefore, as data is refreshed, each scenario can be tested again and the impact on revenues and cashflows easily understood.
Being able to accurately measure the cash flow impact of various future scenarios vastly aids strategic planning. Additionally, during a crisis event, the treasury team will be able to quickly advise the business what needs to happen to maintain sufficient cash levels.
